gunman's plot of terror. before the terror attack that left 14 dead and 21 wounded, syed farook and tashfeen malik left behind evidence they were planning other targets in southern california. they include a possible plan to attack a university or a public area. officials say three years ago, farook may have also talked about staging an attack in loss anxious with his childhood friend enrique marquez before getting cold feet. marquez is being questioned. he's the man farook acquired the rifles from used in last week's shooting. we know farook and malik trained at a shooting rage. the fbi says the couple was radicalized at least two years. first courting online, talking about jihad. farook later moving from pakistan to california.

the k-1 visa program in instances where something needs to be explored. >> reporter: she lied on her visa application, possibly steering investigators away from any trail that may have led to her radicalized background. >> it's too soon to know what if anything might have been missed in the screening process. >> reporter: after raiding the shooters' home, valuable evidence is being found on smashed computers and cell phones. leads that brought investigators to this local high school, where farook had worked as a food inspector and had pictures of the campus on his cell phone. was it a possible target? >> and we're working very, very hard to understand did they have other plans ee fehr for that day or earlier. the fbi director says the terrorists were inspired by foreign terror groups. this so-called family terror group made financial plans for
7:04 am
>> miguel almaguer, thank you. there is new fallout from donald trump's call of a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states. a controversial proposal putting the republican party in a difficult spot. peter alexander has more on that. good morning. >> good morning. donald trump's plan is as controversial as it is divisive. new polling shows most voters opopse his plan to bar muslims from entering the u.s., but it does resonate with republicans. listen to this. one-day online poll found 37% of the voters said it made them more likely to vote for trump. >> wow, thank you. >> reporter: donald trump again threatening gop bosses with a third-party bid. >> if they don't treat me with a certain amount of decorum and respect, if they don't treat me as the front-runner, by far the
7:05 am
field is not level, then certainly all options are open. >> reporter: trump remains unapologetic. >> are you racist? >> i am the least racist person you have ever met. >> reporter: for the first time since trump ignited this latest firestorm, president obama come meblding the end of slavery took a swipe at his loudest critic. >> our freedom is bound up with the freedom of others, regardless of what faith they practice. >> reporter: trump's provocative words are also sparking condemnation worldwide. >> mr. donald trump. >> hear, hear. >> reporter: parliament is calling for trump to be banned from the uk, after hundreds of thousands of people signed on. ahead of trump's planned trip to israel, the israeli prime minister publicly rejected trump's plan. he tweeted he'd meet with the prime minister after he becomes president. a middle east department store chain yanked all trump merchandise all the shelves. hillary clinton is trying to capitalize, arguing his plan
7:06 am
>> donald trump is supplying them with new propaganda. he's actually playing into their hands. >> reporter: facebook founder mark zuckerberg is speaking out in support of muslims in his community. writing, i want you to know, you are always welcome here, and we will fight to protect your rights and create a peaceful and safe environment for you. and after trump lashed out at "time" magazine for snubbing him as its person of the year, "time" is striking back, taunting trump with these never-before-seen blooper reels from a recent photo shoot, the billionaire dodging a bald eagle. >> he says, how's the hair? a new poll out of north carolina shows trump has a 20-point lead and his support grew after his controversial plan was announced. trump is up early this morning, already tweeting, wow, my poll numbers have gone through the
7:07 am
>> peter, thank you very much. by the way, one of the most well known muslims in the world is also weighing in on this. boxing great muhammad ali is calling for muslim leaders to not bring fear. ali says in part, i am a muslim. there is nothing islamic about killing innocent people in paris, sarn bernardino, or anywhere else in the world. true muslims know the ruthless violence of so-called islamic jihadists goes against the tenets of our religion. he goes on to say we ausmuss muslims have to stand up to those who use religion to further their agenda. an alarming announcement out of north korea. kim jong-un says his country has developed a hydrogen bomb. keir simmons is following this nbc's keir simmons is following this story. keir, good morning. >> good morning. this is the first time north korea's leader claimed his
7:08 am
weeks ago, he issued an equally belligerent statement, that he could attack the u.s. at any time. while a hydrogen bomb could produce a stronger blast than the nitrogen bach. he has been on a campaign to pressure the international community, repeatedly making threats. last month, north korea staged the biggest military parade in its history, but there did not appear to be any new weapons. while a year ago, computer hackers attacked sony over "the interview," a movie about the plot to assassinate north korea's leader. so far this morning, there's no comment from the state department on this latest north korean nuclear claim. but it's being viewed with suspicion by many experts. some say it's rhetoric. the aim, perhaps, to send a message that the country will not abandon its nuclear weapons, to force the international community to recognize north korea's nuclear status, something washington says it will never do.
7:09 am
more protests expected in chicago today, a day after demonstrators flooded the streets. they're calling for the resignation of mayor rahm emanuel. this is all in response to the police video of a's why officer shooting a black teenager 16 times. it's led to the firing of chicago's top police officer and a federal investigation into the police department. wednesday, mayor emanuel issued an apology to his city but said once again he's not stepping down. now on to chipotle. 120 boston college students are suffering from norovirus symptoms, being linked to one chipotle near the school. the health scare, another hit for the restaurant chain already dealing with the impact of an e. coli outbreak out west. we are going to talk to chipotle's founder in a moment. first nbc's ron mott with the latest from boston.
7:10 am
savannah. first, e. coli and now norovirus. this has been a rough couple months for chipotle. the company is changing how it landles its food making it one of the safest places to eat in history. chipotle brands itself a fresher, healthier alternative to fast food. the norovirus outbreak has college students who ate here hours before it was announced, questioning their loyalty. >> i got a text from my roommate saying, did you see the e-mail? so many people got sick after eating here, and i'm not sure i'll come back. >> reporter: the number of students sick jumped to 120. the restaurant was cited for three critical violations. >> i'll make sure the establishment is safe. >> reporter: norovirus is a fast spreading virus this causes
7:11 am
it is hard to kill. >> hopefully it will be effective. you have to do more than cleaning solutions. you need ultraviolet light. you ne things like high temperature. >> reporter: the latest round of bad news comes on the heels of an e. coli outbreak at chipotle reres restaurants in nine states, sickening more than six people. the company warning of a double digit drop in same-store sales in the fourth quarter. >> one of the things the company says it'll do is prepare fresh food ingredients off site. things like diced tomatoes and other risky ingredients, sanitize and seal them before shipping them back to restaurants. matt? >> all right. ron mott in boston. ron, thanks so much. steve ells, chipotle's founder and ceo, is with us exclusively. good to have you with us. >> thank you. >> i was watching your face watching the tape. this is a tough time for you guys. >> i'm sorry for the people who got sick. they're having a tough time, and i feel terrible about that. we're doing a lot to rectify
7:12 am
>> let's start in boston and work our way back to the pacific northwest. the norovirus is what sickened these people. 120 people up in boston. the restaurant is closed down. they've been issued some violations. the cleanup is underway. are you convinced you've contained this now, that more people won't contain being sick? >> well, in regard to the e. coli, you know, there was one particular period of time, from mid-october until early november that appeared -- that's when the outbreak occurred, and the reporting of the illnesses came out over a lock period of time. >> so you're saying in boston you could have more cases reported. >> well, with the norovirus, probably, you've heard that this is the extent of it. but it's a very -- it's a
7:13 am
quickly, from person to person. >> you're convinced when you reopen the store near boston, people will not be getting sick if they go back to eat there? >> when we reopen, the restaurant will be completely sanitized and every employee will have been tested and assured they do not have norovirus. >> now let's go back to the pacific northwest. >> yeah. >> the e. coli outbreak started in early october. dozens of people got sick. it's my understanding that after weeks of investigating this, the fda has not found an exact source of that e. coli bacteria, is that true? >> it's true. and we have had teams looking at this. we closed our restaurants out of an abundance of caution and tested all the ingredients, surfaces. thousands and thousands of tests, matt, and they all came back negative for e. coli. so if there is a silver lining in this, it is that we have looked at every single ingredient that we use at
7:14 am
we use 64 ingredients that we bring in, from farm through the distribution network, how we prepare the food, how we cook the food, and how we serve the food. we've had a team of epidemiologists and food safety experts to raise our zarnds from the already industry norms that are -- >> you call it a silver lining. i think it might be troubling. if you can't identify the source, how do you eliminate it in the future? >> well, unfortunately what got people sick was no longer in the system by the time they even showed symptoms. so unfortunately you'll not find that. but the silver lining comment is that it has caused us to put in place practices that our epidemiologist expert says will put us 10 to 15 years ahead of industry norms. i believe this will be the safest restaurant to eat at. >> a lot of damage has been
7:15 am
stock prices droch edpped, double digits since early november. that's a big part of it. first, financially, can the company recover? >> certainly. that's not what we're thinking about now. we're thinking about the safety and quality of our ingredients. to put in place practices that will not enable this to happen again. practices that are so far above industry norms today, we will be the safest place to eat. that is our commitment. much like food with integrity, to bring the best ingredients to fast food, we have practices that will make it the safest place to eat. >> finally, real quickly, there are critics who say, mr. ells, this company started with a great idea and grew too fast. that it took off at a rate where you couldn't keep control of things like sourcing and quality control. even things that would affect the public health. is there some merit to that claim?
7:16 am
you look at the quality of our ingredients over time, we've made a great strides in sourcing better quality foods. more organics. more local and sustainably raised foods. this was a very unfortunate incident, and i'm deeply sorry this happened. but the procedures we're putting in place today are so above industry norms that we are going to be the safest place to eat. >> steve ells, good of you to join us this morning. >> matt, thank you. >> i know you've got app awful lot going on. >> thank you. now, we go to colorado and a fiery day in court for the man accused of killing a police officer and two others at a planned parenthood last month. robert dear in court to be formally charged had several outbursts, including telling the court he is guilty. >> the truth, huh? kill the babies, that's what planned parenthood does. nobody will ever know the amount of blood i saw inside that place. >> dear called himself a, quote, warrior for the babies. his attorney said he had serious
7:17 am
to stand trial. he'll be back in court on december 23rd. now we'll move to the weather and tale of two coasts. you've got some stories of the weather. warm out here -- >> warm here, but stormy out west. it continues. let's look at some video from northwestern oregon. folks have been having to drive through flooded roads, which they should not do. there have been landslides, mudslides. we're going to be seeing more of this, and mountain snows, as well. let's show you what we have happening now. we have two storms. currently, one is getting ready to push on shore. we've got another one out here in the pacific. that's going to be bringing some pretty strong storms, as well. we watch this rain make its way in, and we're going to see heavy rain, heavy snow making its way through the pacific northwest. first, one batch comes in today. snow from the cascades to the sierra. tomorrow, heavy rain for oregon and washington and more snow for
7:18 am
and, in fact, look at some of the rainfall amounts. we're talking about 7 inches plus along the oregon/california border. mudslides, debris flow possible. a real mess. if there is a silver lining, it's the heavy snow that'll fall in the sierra. some areas may get 3 feet of snow, which is great news for helping to alleviate the drought. that's what's going on.
7:19 am
in the next 30 seconds. >> coming up in the next half hour, record-setting heat for the weekend. thank you so much. coming up, an ugly scene. look what happened to this taxi driver on the streets protesting uber. plus, could your holiday lights display accidentally blind pilots? shower lasers.
